La Paloma is the perfect choice for your next special event. Combining Hill Country scenery, the elegance of a unique setting and the convenience of home, we accommodate everything from intimate weekend getaways to large business meetings.
Mission Statement
We are building our business on the foundation of “service to others before selves,” and our passion is to accommodate and facilitate the dynamics of family, community and tradition.
A Perfect Experience
La Paloma is situated close to the city of Austin but tucked far enough away to be the perfect site for both large or intimate events. Because of the inspirational atmosphere here, guests can create their own vision of their perfect experience. La Paloma is the perfect choice for a weekend getaway or a special event, as it weaves together the beauty of the outdoors of Austin, the elegance of a unique setting and the convenience of home.
Love At First Sight
Upon first driving up to La Paloma, the stunning views can easily take your breath away. It is located in a quiet, remote area, considered part of the Hill Country, but still close to the city. A unique granite path outlines the entire five acres of land. This location is even more refined with its organic features such as mature trees, small waterfalls and rock-lined ponds.
Our Facilities
The main house, pool house and pavilion flow comfortably throughout the property, each with its own views of beautiful trees, bushes and flowers. Set further in the distance but easily accessible is the largest oak tree on the property, centered in the middle of a wooden deck, perfect for cocktail hour, photo shoots or relaxing. Read less

We just had our wedding at Antebellum Oaks and absolutely loved it! The venue is beautiful and in a very peaceful setting, with a little creek running around the outside and roses blooming everywhere. We got so many compliments on the venue from our guests.

The only drawback is their lack of flexibility. They have contracts with other vendors and make you use them. I really didn't like working with DNA Events (who they make you use to provide service if you get food catered from a local restaurant), but I had no choice. They also only give you one lighting company to use and 3 DJs. But - most of them were good.

Overall, I would DEFINITELY recommend them!

This is a great venue for the couple who really wants that outside wedding but also wants the guarantee that the ever-changing Austin weather will not cause any issues. The grounds are gorgeous requiring very little exterior decoration and the bride and groom suites are luxurious and large compared to others we visited. The only issues I had were with the owner "coordinator/planner" Diana who seems to be constantly all over the place and very disorganized (she lost all our information after our meeting) but she's quick to offer her day of coordinating services for an additional fee! Thankfully she was not there on my wedding day and the woman who was the on-site manager (sadly I cannot remember her name....megan maybe?) was extremely nice and on the ball and took care of our every need while keeping the evening running smoothly. If they put her in charge of all the day of planning/schedules this venue would be perfect!

This venue is beautiful! They also provide tables, chairs and linens that many venues charge extra for. The guests have continually commented on how stunning of a locations this is. They provide not only a lovely Bridal suite, but also a Groomsmen pool house. The grounds are breathtaking.

My daughter was married at Antebellum Oaks this past Saturday and all I can say is What a Gorgeous venue and Wonderful wedding. The staff was so professional and accommodating to us and our guests. The setting is absolutely beautiful. The Bride and her Bridesmaids had a lovely "Bridal Suite" to use during the day and the Groom and his Groomsmen had an awesome "Groom's Quarters" which included a pool and hottub. So many of our guests complimented me on the breathtaking views and beautiful venue. Diana and Frank were a joy to work with and on the day of the wedding, their extended staff were there to help with all of our needs. I HIGHLY recommend Antebellum Oaks.

This was the absolutely perfect venue for us. It had the trees and outside setting we were looking for, with a reception hall at hand and an open lawn for lawn games.

Diana and Frank did a great job of responding to our questions and helping everything flow smoothly on the day of the wedding. They were thorough, flexible, and really cared about making our event the best it could be. They even let me rearrange their office so I could use it for a first look!

It's a fantastic venue, run by amazing people.

Diana of Antebellum Oaks is simply awesome. She was always genuinely happy for us and you can see that she really cares and enjoys hosting weddings at Antebellum Oaks. We loved that the grounds are so lovingly cared for and the landscaping is beautiful. We didn't need a lot of outdoor decor because of the natural plants and flowers. When you turn down Murfin Road on your way to Antebellum Oaks- you enjoy a beautiful drive. The experience begins before you arrive. With a lot of beautiful venues in and around Austin, you drive through "interesting" areas on your way to the actual venue. At Antebellum Oaks you feel like you completely out in the hill country or even on a preserve (AO is actually nestled in the middle of a preserve) but you are not super far from Austin and Lakeway- plenty of nearby places for out of town guests to stay. We loved that everything seems to be thought of for a wedding or event. Parking, bathrooms, getting ready areas for the bride and groom and a great catering kitchen. AO is flexible for ceremony and gathering areas. You just need to drive to AO to fully get the feeling of love and beauty.

Antebellum Oaks was an absolutely beautiful setting for my daughter and new son in laws wedding and reception!! We looked at several other venues, but kept going back and saying Antebellum Oaks was the one. Frank was amazing at answering all my questions right away. I could nearly always call him on the phone and he would help me with anything I asked. Diana was there the day and all through the evening of the actual event and was right there when I needed her for anything! I had so many compliments from the guests about the beautiful setting. The wedding was held under the gorgeous light wrapped trees with a babbling brook as a backdrop, and the reception was held in their amazing reception hall that has glass doors all the way around so you are able to take in the gorgeous views. They provide everything you need, including tables and chairs placed wherever you want them and linens. The bridal suite was very comfortable and the groom's quarters were amazing! They even let us make a change to a different room at the very last minute to hold a private family cocktail hour before the reception began. I can't say enough good things about them. Thank you Frank, Diana, and Antebellum Oaks for making our daughter's wedding and reception, in her words, PERFECT, MOM AND DAD!!

If you are looking for an outdoor ceremony and indoor reception Antebellum Oaks is the place for you. We picked this venue because of how beautiful it is. We did our ceremony on a deck under huge twinkle lit trees with a gorgeous garden and pond behind us. Our ceremony and reception decor was very minimal because of how great this place is on it's own. The reception hall has all glass sliding door walls so you can take the hill country views inside. They provided our ceremony and reception chairs as well as tables and linens. The staff at Antebellum is really flexible. They even let us come in 2 hours earlier to get dressed in the bridal and groom's suites. I can't brag on this place enough! By far the most beautiful venue I've seen in Austin!

We had our rehearsal dinner at La Paloma the Friday night before our wedding. We initially had spotty communication when we first signed our contract because La Paloma was transitioning through new management, but Diana began communicating with us at the beginning of March and she was incredibly friendly and flexible. The rental included tables, linens, chiavari chairs (how rare is that!), set up, and break down at the end of the night, which makes it so easy and hassle free. Another one of the main reasons we chose La Paloma was the ability to choose outside catering - we were able to bring in food from two different restaurants. We kept it simple that night and didn't do any decorations, which worked out just fine because La Paloma is so beautiful already - the pavilion is beautifully lit, there's great landscaping with a small creek and huge trees. We got tons of comments throughout the night about how beautiful the venue was.

La Paloma is a beautiful venue at a great value. There's a house, pool, and poolhouse on the property that you can rent if you have your wedding there. The venue is definitely a hidden gem!

LaPaloma Events is an amazing venue in Austin! We searched around for months and finally found the perfect place. It has the perfect setting for an outdoor (or indoor) wedding. The landscaping is beautiful. I did very little for ceremony and reception decorations because the place is so beautiful on its own.
And the owners and staff are amazing. They went above and beyond to help us plan and coordinate throughout the entire planning process. And they pulled it all together flawlessly on the day of. They are very professional and attentive and fun!
I would definitely recommend LaPaloma. It is a beautiful place with great people and a great price.

We looked at about 40 different venues to find the perfect place for our ceremony and reception. Ridiculous? Yes, but I have been a wedding coordinator for 3 years, and as soon as I met Eileen and Casey and saw La Paloma in person, I knew we couldn't ask for a better venue. Diana and her husband Mike, the owners of La Paloma, are fantastic! They obviously take great pride in their gorgeous venue because the landscaping is always perfectly manicured and the entire space is always spotless. Eileen and Casey were my day of coordinators but were there for me every step of the way. During the planning process, they helped with set up and decoration ideas, floorplans, timeline and so much more. The night of the wedding, Josh and I didn't have to do a thing. They took care of setting everything up and making sure we were staying on track, without being pushy. We could not have asked for a better venue. They made us feel amazing on our special day and our guests are still ranting and raving about how beautiful the ceremony and reception were. We can not thank them enough and we highly recommend La Paloma for a wedding or any other special event.

A beautiful Lakeway location for weddings with top-notch service provided by owners and staff.  The venue offers a gorgeous main house complete with five bedrooms for overnight stays for up to ten or so guests, an elegant upstairs pool table, large-screen televisions, luxurious, modern bathrooms and kitchen, panoramic patio views, a swimming pool, cozy DVD screening room, bbq grills, separate bridal suite from the main house (which my hair and make-up team said was the nicest getting-ready room they had ever seen, with its sumptuous furnishings and tons of natural light) an outdoor cocktail hour patio and a very upscale, attractive pavillion which houses as many as 150 guests and can be curtained off or left open-air (depending on the weather).

I married my fiance at La Paloma on 11/4/11, and can't tell you how helpful, considerate, professional, patient and simply overall calming Casey and Eileen were with us with all the preparations leading up to our big day and on the day of.  I really can't imagine having done everything on our own; the day-of coordinating that was included with our package proved invaluable.

Casey helped assemble our centerpieces for the reception tables, which were semi-d.i.y.  That in itself was a huge help and we've received so many compliments from family and friends on how beautiful everything was, down to the tiniest detail.  We also appreciated that La Paloma's staff were sensitive and considerate enough to our guests to make a last-minute executive decision to move the cocktail hour proceedings from the outdoor patio to inside the enclosed pavilion (while my new husband and I were busy taking photos).  While I was a little sad the weather was too chilly to allow for the cocktail hour on the deck as I had originally envisioned, it was much more important to us that our guests not be shivering and uncomfortable, and Casey and Eileen totally understood that without having to check with us first.  The owner Diana brought wine and h'ors d'oeuvres to us for a quick, private toast between my husband and I in the bridal suite post-ceremony before we joined our guests and while she was there helped my mon and sister figure out the bustle on my dress, which was totally sweet and helpful.  These and so many other little, personal touches on their parts were such a huge help and really made us feel so welcome.

Definitely give La Paloma a look if you're venue-hunting.  I know I'm so glad we did....beautiful, elegant setting with as little stress on the bride and groom as possible!

We knew we wanted an outside wedding and looked at several vendors around Austin. La Paloma is a beautiful property that is constantly being updated with improvements. They also had a great rain plan and a gorgeous house on site. The coordinator Eileen was also wonderful! The ceremony and reception both turned out great.

As the mother of the bride I would like to say how easy it was to work with this venue. I received a lot of answers and ideas leading up to our daughters big day. We had both the ceremony and reception at this beautiful place, so, so many spots to take pictures it was so hard to choose! Mike and Diana were so super fast at setting up and cleaning up. They are so experienced and great at keeping your event running smoothly and on time. There was so much room for our 160+ guests. I would highly reccomend this venue for any occasion, the facilities are immpeccable and the price is right!

Eileen and Diana were great to work with over the past few months. La Paloma was only minutes away from our ceremony site. La Paloma allowed all the girls to stay the night prior at the house on site, which allowed us to all get ready together. The house and pavillion are beautifully decorated and it was the perfect setting for our reception and wedding photos.

The venue is an extremely beautiful place and still has that authentic refined Texas feel in respect to the accommodating nature of the owners and staff and the look of the venue itself. The grounds are very well taken care of and the staff have great ideas and suggestions for those who need a little guidance. The main house is absolutely gorgeous and I highly recommend renting the house for the weekend for those having a wedding. It is a great value and eliminates much of the stress so you can simply enjoy the event with family and friends. The staff work wonderfully with other vendors and have a full industrial kitchen for the caterers. They have everything you could ask for including rooms for sleeping, bridal dressing area, media room near the pool, covered pavilion, beautiful trees and stream, and the most honest, friendly, and heartfelt staff you could ever hope for. The video on the website sums everything up, it is simply the best choice you can make for any event.

I really loved working with Diana and Eileen at La Paloma. They were very easy to work with and helped in any way they could...from recommending vendors to helping set up things the day of the wedding. I felt very comfortable at a very stressful time. Our wedding day was fabulous (weather could have been better!) and everyone had a wonderful time. The only thing that was weird, was when it was 10:00 for the wedding to end, the lights immediately came on and clean up began...there was no ease into it. I felt like we were being kicked out even though we were renting the house on the property.
